How to Hang Stretch Shapes Quicker and More Easily

 

 

 

Rose Brand congratulates our fifth blog contest winner, Gilbert Monroy. His blog entry described how he built aluminum frames to make the process of hanging up strech shapes quicker and easier.

Here is how HE did it...

He started off buying a 6 Point Splat #2 and a 5 Point Splat #1. After trying to hang these up at various venues for DJ events, he had to figure out a faster way of hanging them up to get an even stretch. It was too hard to find tie points and get them to look correct. So, Gilbert made frames for each one using 1X1 aluminum square tubing shaped to each splat. These were used to project visuals for DJ events featuring Dead Mau5, Bad Boy Bill, The Crystal Method, Lee Burridge, Infected Mushroom to name a few plus events for his mobile DJ service Rhythm & Dance Factory. Visuals are projected using Eiki projectors and visuals are sent using a MacBook Pro and Arkaos Grand VJ along with Serato Scratch Live during video DJ shows.
